when you are on a two-wheeler, there are only two things that matter: the ultimate road presence and the unadulterated riding pleasure, both are qualities which the new BMW R nineT Roadster Bike can offer. nested within this hand-built feel classic roadster bike is a 1.2-Liter air/oil-cooled twin-cylinder boxer engine, delivering 110 hp (81 kW) and 88 lb-ft (119 Nm) of torque that would put many regular cars to shame. the nineT, as it is affectionately known as, is built around a modular frame concept with removable pillion frame and frame end-piece, which as a side benefit, makes this ride highly suited for further customization.
it has a classic wheel suspension concept, utilizing high-quality inverted telescopic fork up front and paralever at the rear that sees to the handling aspect of the ride, while 17-inch wire-spoke wheels with black anodized alloy and hubs completes the traction department. reassuring stopping power comes from radial 4-pod monoblock brake calipers matched to steel-braided brake lines and floating 320mm brake discs and BMW Motorrad very own ABS. if you love custom bikes, we are sure you will fall in love with the nineT roadster bike. no efforts were spared to achieve the puristic look, including painstakingly hand brushed sides of the 18-liter aluminum tank, aluminum plate with embossed nineT branding (located just above the air intake duct, plus glass bead-blasted and anodized on its many forged aluminum parts, just to name a few.
judging from the official product page, it looks like the BMW R nineT Roadster Bike is “sort of” available now, but we have absolutely no idea what’s the price. though there’s a request for an offer.
